Great article and extremely helpful insights. I think one of the challenges to reaching the proof of ROI stage is getting investment for the initial information inventory. The cost outlay deters some organizations. Shannon Harmon, Jones Harmon Communications, Inc. jones-harmon.com

Enjoyed the article. Very hard to quantify value. In our Data Governance program, we quarterly measure some data quality statistics, data steward participation, attributes syncronized across the corporation...we're on a journey. Henry mentions "A number of studies have pegged knowledge workers as spending 30-40 percent of their time (2.5 to 3 hours per day) searching for information." Other than Susan Feldman in 2004 at www.kmworld.com, are there any other studies?
